With all the snow left on the ground from the Blizzard of 2013, and more in the forecast, spring might seem like a lifetime away.
Until then, the Connecticut Flower & Garden Show is coming to Hartford’s Connecticut Convention Center from Thursday, Feb. 21 to Sunday, Feb. 24 and you can get a glimpse of the upcoming season.
The theme is “Love in Bloom,” and you can view more than 20 gardens, hundreds of displays and activities, and aisles of fresh flowers, plants, garden ornaments, herbs, bulbs, seeds, fertilizers, soils, gardening books, patio furniture and other lawn equipment.
The event will also include floral and garden arts and crafts, hours of seminars by horticulturists and experts and the Federated Garden Clubs of Connecticut’s 2013 Advanced Standard Flower Show.
If you attend, you can bring half a cup of soil to the UConn Coop booth for free soil testing.
Tickets are $16 for adults. Admission if $4 for children, ages 5 through 12; and free for children under the age of 5.
The event is cash only.
Tickets are $14 for seniors on Thursday and Friday only.
